St. Barnabas, Montgomery, has always considered music part of its DNA, with world class pianist Michael Chertock and numerous opera stars leading its music program. Now, St Barnabas wants to share its love of music with the residents of Montgomery and across Cincinnati, with its new series, St B at 3 (Saint B at 3).
The series will kick off on Sunday, March 12 with a performance by members of the Starling Chamber Orchestra. This preparatory program from the University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory of Music will perform music by Mozart, Bach, Leclair and Sarasate (sah-rah-SAH-tay).
Founded by Kurt Sassmannshaus (ZAHS-mahns-howss) in 1987, the SCO offers unprecedented opportunities for young artists to perform as soloists, tour internationally, and make recordings. They have been featured on programs such as “From the Top”, Performance Today” and Young Artist’s Showcase.” The concert will begin at 3 p.m. and last about an hour.
On Sunday, May 7, Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions will team with Madcap Puppets to present a program for kids of all ages, based on the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood.
September 17 brings the phenomenal No Promises Vocal Band to St. B, delighting with their amazing harmonies and original renditions of familiar pop, jazz, R & B and yacht rock music.
The season wraps up on November 5 with internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist Mandy Gaines and Friends.
All concerts begin at 3 p.m. and are free of charge; freewill donations will be accepted.
